Pop culture stylists Andy “A” Griffith and Rose “R” Apodaca source functional design objects from around the world at their glass-front Abbot Kinney shop. Whimsical design can be found in everything from carved wooden boxes resembling whales and llamas to gadgets like self-watering planters. Find a variety of gift items like animal figurines from Sweden, handcrafted belt buckles, and organic felt toy animals. For the cook, there are modern wood cutting boards, bowls, and cups. Shelves are also stocked with clocks, candelabras, and colorful phone headsets, while globe-shaped lanterns hang from the ceiling.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
